Will they accept him?
I have a problem. I have fallen for my ex of 10 years ago again.Then I was 17 he was 19. Our relationship lasted for 8 months and i was the one who dumped him not bcoz I didn't love him .We both moved on with another people but my relationship after him with a certain ex of mine lasted for 5 years. He moved on with his life, got married and his wife passed amay 2 years ago. Ever since our breakup each time I happen to bump into him he would tell me how he loved me and still does and that actually he could have married me if I hadn't dumped him. The problem is I dumped him because I was not comfortable with the fact that he went out with my sister for a period of 2 months and went out with other peole after that, then me. Their separation has nothing to do with me, because I dated him a year after. I know that man loved me, even when we were together he treated me like a princess. No man cared for me the way that man did. But because of that reason I decided to dump him bcoz my parents were against our relationship so I ended it. My sister is married to a wonderful man they have 2 kids together and says she doesn't have a problem with that bcoz the relationship didn't mean that much to her bcoz we we still young then in our teens. Now I am back with him again and he wants to marry me, the things is I am worried if my parents will accept him. I love him and he loves me too and we want to be together. This situation is frustrating me.

Dear Lovely,
It really doesn't sound as if there's any reason for there to be a problem here, except perhaps for your great talent in making problems which aren't essential. Your parents wishes are not strictly relevant, as they were not being asked to marry him, and you don't mention any good reasons they might have had for their earlier prejudice against him. Good luck !
